The Swabbie is a long fixed blade that's based off the curved short sword known as the scimitar. The blade stretches 12.5 inches and is made of 1095 Cro-Van steel, a popular steel among KA-BAR fixed blades. The scimitar blade shape is surprisingly versatile with a deep slicing belly and a piercing point.

While zombie knives are known as gimmicks, the Swabbie is a highly functional tool you wouldn't be ashamed to use in the fields.

The ergonomic handle scales are made from durable GFN. The pre-mounted zombie green scales increase the visibility of the tool, but the Swabbie also includes black GRN scales if you want to tone down the zombieness.

It also comes with a MOLLE compatible sheath, a zombie patch, and a small Acheron Skeleton knife.

Made right here in the United States, the KA-BAR Swabbie is more than a gimmick that can find a place in any tool collection.

Whether swashbuckling opponents of the Zombie kind or otherwise, this traditionally shaped beast hasn't lost its ability to put the fear in a man.

Knife comes mounted with toxic green handles. Extra set of black scales and Acheron Skeleton Knife (only) included. Zombie® patch included, mounted on MOLLE compatible sheath

Making a quality KA-BAR product requires the talent of experienced craftspeople performing dozens of processes with precision and skill. Each knife undergoes specific manufacturing processes to ensure corrosion resistance, strength, edge holding ability, and an out-of-the-box razor sharp cutting edge.

Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company.

He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was "k a bar". The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.
